Mascareri is an ode to the elite mask maker’s guild of Venice. “Those who made the Venetian masks at the age of the Serenissima were the "Mascareri", associated in the Arte dei Maschereri since 1436.”
Mascareri enjoyed a prominent position within society, were well respected and lived lavish and extravagant lifestyles (similar to the art they created). Originally only 11 people were associated with the mascherer community including one woman, Barbara Scharpetta.
Today, a small portion of shops are still using maschereri and the coveted artform lives on. Celebrate your next occasion with the Mascareri Prosecco.
